Watercolourists rejoice! World Watercolour Month is now officially every July! But do you know what World Watercolour Month is?

We all know the popular INKTOBER art challenge where thousands of pro and beginner artists participate by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month.

Founded in 2016 by Charlie O’Shields, World Watercolour Month is a similar art challenge but for those who love the watercolour and gouache medium. It is a global celebration of watercolour and aims to raise awareness for art and creativity around the world. 

They have teamed up with The Dreaming Zebra Foundation , a charitable institution which aims to provide support for kids and teens to receive an equal chance to develop their creativity in the arts. You can make a donation to their cause here: DONATE – Click here
